Global Go Team | Brazil
Brazil

Two hundred miles inland from the northern coast of  Brazil, there are several thousand miles of highland desert called the Sertao.

This plateau, high above the fertile coastal regions has, for several centuries been home to some of the poorest people on earth,  descendants of runaway slaves, dis-enfranchised native Indians, outlaws and explorers.

Even today, because of the periodic intense droughts, it remains one of the poorest regions on earth and one of the least evangelized in Brazil.

God is calling for revival in the Sertao,  it is time for something new.  The team will be heading there in October for a survey trip.  On the trip our local contacts will work with our team to plan a trip in 2011 to install underground water cisterns that will catch rainfall from rooftops in a village and channel it through pipes to the cistern.  The cistern will contain a u.v. treatment system that will be solar powered.  These cisterns contain 1000 gallons of water.

 

Lebanon

The Global Go Team is cosponsoring a bible college in Lebanon to train new Muslim converts.  Before the civil war in Lebanon the Christian population was 52% in 1960.   Today that number has dropped to 32%.  Lebanon’s government divides the nation’s rule between Christians and Muslims.  Its land is even zoned for either religion. A great deal of openness exists in Lebanon.  A tolerance has grown that has come at a great price.  Yet the country continues to shift towards radical Muslim schools of thought.  There is a timely need for Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant churches to work together to encourage those Christians remaining and to take a proactive role in protecting the heritage of Lebanon by remembering the great commission of Jesus Christ and sharing their faith with others.  A biblical studies institution is desperately needed, and especially an institution that is geared towards those who have recently been converted from Islam.
